Trans_27 Pilot Chase

Bright Idea!: FS from a Jet?

Recommended Posts

I'm flying out on ASQ4531 IAH-MAF at 1pm CST. Who else has ever thought of setting up a laptop and joystick, flying the same exact flight plan as the flight that you're on mainly just to see if you can land about the same time?

 

Naturally some attendant would have a stroke if you tried, but still.... Am I the only one?

I remember reading about somebody who did that already, it was some longhaul transatlantic 747 flight if I remember right. Apparently flight attendants took it very well. Certainly interesting idea.  :lol:

The flight attendants will tell you "please turn off all electronic devices" before you land.

I'd pretend to be deaf... :rolleyes:

Isn't it though?

"Captain, I'll bet you $500 I can fly the same route and be on the ground before you."

 

"Alright, deal."
